Posted March 18th, 2014 @ 5:19pm

This afternoon we talked about the story of a 9-year-old North Carolina boy who has been the victim of bullying after carrying a "My Little Pony" backpack to school. 

In addition to your calls, we heard from a couple of experts.  Listen below to Dr. Lisa Kovach, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Toledo, and Brittany Mason, a victim of bullying in high school.  Brittany overcame her bullying to become Miss Indiana, international model, and actress on shows like CSI, 2 1/2 Men, and The Face.

Brittany's story is featured in Cosmopolitan this week:  How One Model Overcame the High School Bullies Who Terrorized Her.  Her anti-bullying platform, I AM POSSIBLE, is gaining national attention:  Brittany's #iampossible campaign to encourage unity, acceptance and celebrating our differences


Here's a few pictures of Brittany today:
